Bergamot is my personal favorite for Wood and the hun soul. It has a heady, almost intoxicating scent that is at the same time calming and expansive.
Bergamot harmonizes stagnant liver qi, regulates the nervous system, lifts the spirits and relieves anxiety, brings suppressed emotion to the surface, and supports the transformation of frustration into hope. I mix it with carrier oil and massage it into the sub-costal region, especially over the liver area on the right side and mid-thoracic area of the back. It can also be applied directly to specific points. Bergamot essential oil has a potent effect on both the liver and gall bladder meridians.
Please share your own experiences and observations of use with this oil on the points Liver 3 and Ear Shen Men here!
